A sensor could be misleading your cars computer. It sounds like the oxygen sensor. It seems to me you're running rich. Go to a parts store. Most have a diagnostic computer and will check for free. This should tell you if it's a sensor and which. If it's more than just a bad sensor you will need someone to troubleshoot it. Unfortunately that will have to be done hands on. It would take me hours to explain and describe all the variables whereas a mechanic can do it faster looking at it.

change the O2 sensors and if that doesnt work then its a new cat ,you can test the sensors first if you have a automotive test meter though its easy with the right gear ,the two wires with the same colour should read 12v heater circuit and the other two should read a variation from 8v to 12v depending on engine speed
